Hints of OS X name change to MacOS

Apple may have hinted at plans to change the name of its desktop operating system from OS X to MacOS, 9to5Mac reported.

In an updated webpage on Apple’s site for its Earth Day 2016 efforts, the company refers to MacOS, tvOS, iOS, and watchOS devices.

There is no mention of OS X on the site.

This follows an earlier discovery in an OS X 10.11.4 framework which used “macOS” in its naming scheme, 9to5Mac reported.

Apple changed the name of Mac OS X to OS X in 2012 when it launched version 10.8 of the desktop operating system – Mountain Lion.
